THE NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC MAGAZINE Photograph by J. Leite A BUSY STREET IS CLEARED FOR A WILD BULL'S ACTION The angry creature corners his foe in a doorway. Only a timely tug on the long leash lying across the steps at the right can prevent a casualty in this "bullfight of the rope" (see pages 52 and 58). Here, on Terceira, unusually savage cattle are bred, and in 1581 a herd of them driven at the invading Spaniards helped to rout the enemy. Photograph by Wilhelm Tobien TRAINED DOGS ARE THE ERRAND BOYS OF PONTA DELGADA Big, shaggy, intelligent animals trudge off to market bearing a basket with a written order inside to do the family shopping. Carefully taught by specialists, good dogs never loiter or play when on duty. At noon they often carry lunch to their masters, some traveling miles from outlying farms.
